BRATISLAVA, Slovakia – NATO has to take the necessary steps to protect the alliance from external cyber threats from other countries but also weaknesses within NATO, General John Allen told a closed on the record briefing at the GLOBSEC Forum in Bratislava.

Asked by New Europe if NATO is identifying specific countries as potential threats for cyber security, Allen said, “Sure. At the intel level, absolutely. And, frankly, you have countries that are coming at you. And you have other countries that are weaknesses within NATO because they’re not taking the kind of steps necessary to protect their networks. You have vulnerabilities of your own and you have to work with certain countries to ensure that if they’re not properly protected, your network is protected from them so it’s a very interesting moment actually.”

Allen along with Jim Townsend, adjunct Senior Fellow at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), Admiral (Retd.) Giampaolo di Paola and Professor Julian Lindley French discussed on May 18 the GLOBSEC Policy Institute Initiatives.
